Our About page has live links.


We found that we really like songwriting as individuals and as a band. Although many songs are started by one Insufferable, everyone collaborates, helping to arrange the new material, and adding their own parts. Or sometimes someone will write lyrics for someone else’s song. Generally each song has an ‘owner’ who oversees the development and makes final decisions (listed below).

We have two EPs and are getting to record a bunch of new songs.
